Roman cleaners take to the streets of Thanet for Comic Relief

This is Kent

THEY may not have a hundred men working for them, but groundkeepers at the isle’s parks and public spaces will be dressed as centurions on Friday (March 13).

Grounds maintenance staff will be dressing up as Romans and carrying buckets to raise money for Comic Relief.

The team raised £850 for last year’s appeal and are hoping to better that this time around.

Deputy Chief Executive John Bunnett said: “Our grounds maintenance team not only do a superb job of maintaining our parks and open spaces, but they also do an excellent job of raising money for good causes.

“They put so much effort into finding unusual ways to get people to put their hands in their pockets for good causes, so if you see any Romans out on the streets of Thanet on Red Nose Day, please be sure to give generously. Hopefully, if everyone digs deep, then the team can raise a really good amount of money for Comic Relief.”
